Dental bleaching is a method that lightens teeth by a few tones , restoring their clarity and shine.
The typical dental bleaching procedure usually takes about 40 minutes. During this procedure, the teeth rarely become sensitive. If possible, on the bleaching day, the patient should avoid brushing with toothpaste. This is advisable because the chemicals inside most toothpastes may inhibit the bleaching action. Afterwards, proper brushing with toothpaste can and should be practiced. However, the bleaching effect lasts for approximately 24 hours later the bleaching procedure, so consuming food and drink that could stain your teeth should be avoided. Excessively hot or cold food and drink should also be avoided during this period.
Sensitivity after bleaching may continue for one day. Typically, after one day, all sensitivity has disappeared, and the patient is enjoying a brighter smile. The procedure in no way harms or weakens the teeth. For people having yellowish teeth, the teeth color generally lightens more dramatically. If the color includes grey tones, the procedure may have less pronounced results.
At Dentway Dental Clinic , an improvement in brightness of tones can be achieved either in our office, or with a special kit for home use.
